Carers of People with Alcohol and Substance Misuse Problems

Specialist support to help you cope with the impact of substance misuse

Caring for someone with a substance misuse problem has a unique set of challenges. Understanding the reasons behind addiction and the effects substances can have on someone’s emotions and behaviour can help you cope with your caring role.

It is easy to feel isolated, alone and helpless, especially if the person misusing substances is a close family member or friend.

The Carers’ Support Service has a specialist support worker who can offer both one-to-one and group support. We can help you work through difficult emotions, develop coping strategies and give you the knowledge and confidence to support the person you care for.

Call the Carers’ Support Service on 01472 242277 to book an appointment.
